[ cheers and applause ] that's what i'm talking about. a lot of fun. quick, here's what people are talking about, you guys. after hours and hours of tough negotiationsthe most powerful people in america have finally come to an agreement. that's right. if it's a girl, they're gonna name it kim. if it's a boy, they'll name it kanye. [ laughter and applause ] they figured it out. [ applause ] some major political news. after months of uncertainty, congress has passed a bill to
avoid the fiscal cliff, which is great. [ applause ] and now that the deal is complete, president obama is going back to hawaii to finish his family vacation, while congress is heading back to their favorite place to vacation -- congress. [ laughter ] while working on the deal to avoid the fiscal cliff, members of congress spent new year's eve at the capitol. yeah, even the guy watching "the twilight zone" marathon with his parents was like, "talk about a lame new year." [ laughter ] you guys hear about this? this is a crazy story. there are reports that john boehner told harry reid to go "f" himself outside the oval office last week. that's true. then on top of that, republicans told reid that if he does "f" himself, they won't pay for his contraception. [ laughter and applause ] won't do it. >> not gonna do it. >> jimmy: no go. not going to do it. uh-uh, uh-uh. no way. you think about it before -- yeah. actually, though, after boehner -- true story. he did tell reid to "f" himself,
but he said the word. [ light laughter ] but boehner told reid to go "f" himself, and then, apparently, reid came back with, "what are you talking about?" [ light laughter ] that was the comeback. and then, boehner said it again. and that's just what's being reported in the news. but we actually got our hands on the transcript of the rest of the conversation. [ light laughter ] it got really heated, and we can't print what was actually said, but i think you can probably guess. take a look at this. first, boehner said, "you heard me, dumbass. i said go bleep yourself." to which reid replied, "i don't understand. whwould i want to bleep myself?" [ laughter ] and then, boehner said, "you know what the bleep i'm talking about, you bleep. you can cram that bleep of yours right up your bleeping bleep bleep, you bleep." [ laughter ] and then, reid said, "wait, what? how would i even bleep my bleep up my own bleep?" [ laughter ] and then, boehner said, "i don't know, dude. just bleep it in half and bleep it into a bleep shape.
then, cram it into the bleep!" [ laughter ] [ scattered applause ] to which -- to which reid replied, "but that would hurt!" [ laughter ] and then, boehner said, "that's right the point, you bleeping bleep!" and then, reid was like, "oh, wait, i get it. you're mad at me." [ laughter ] you're mad at me. [ cheers and applause ] he didn't know. just say it in the first place. i didn't -- [ applause ] you guys, i heard that dunkin' donuts is testing a new line of gluten-free pastries. so, if you're looking to eat healthy, still no. [ laughter ] and finally, on monday night, thieves broke into the apple store in paris and stole $1 million worth of iphones and ipads. that's right. they took four iphones and two ipads. we have a great show tonight. give it up for the roots!

♪ incredible animal animal animal thoughts ♪ >> jimmy: guys, i'm going to let you in on a little secret. i'm basically a mind reader. i can tell what people and animals are thinking just by looking at the way they interact with each other. like, for example, take a look at this. here, we see a woman on skis being pulled by a horse. that's a pretty winter scene there. and can i tell just by looking at the woman that she's thinking, "easy, boys, where are you taking me?" but the horse is thinking something very different. the horse is thinking, "where the ice is the weakest." [ laughter ] see, very different thought. freaky horse. >> yeah. >> jimmy: here's another example here. this is -- [ laughter ] rather interesting shot there to see the woman posing on top of the horse, and i can tell that she's thinking, "these photos are going to be great."
[ laughter ] and the horse is thinking, "my brother's on 'game of thrones.' i'm doing this? i need a new agent." [ laughter and applause ] hey, work is work, man. work is work, man. [ applause ] now, look at this one here. this is a woman needle pointing at the table. her dog is sitting in a chair next to her. that's cute. she's thinking, "i had the worst day at work." and the dog is thinking, "is karen being a bitch again?" [ laughter ] i mean, you got to talk to someone. you got to talk to someone. look at this one here. a woman eating a snack as her dog looks on. the woman is thinking, "hey, girl, you want some of this cereal?" and the dog is thinking, "no, i want you to do the dishes more so you don't have to eat out of an old yankee candle jar." [ laughter ] [ scattered applause ] -- responsible dog, yeah. mm, linen. moving on. here's a scuba diver taking a photo of two whales in the ocean. he's thinking, "i think those whales are mating." and the whales are thinking, "three way?"
[ laughter ] let's keep going here. it's a man making a strange face at a fish he just caught. he's thinking, "i got you!" and the fish is thinking, "dad?" [ laughter ] i can see kind of the -- here's the last one here. the woman kneeling next to her dog in the rain. she's thinking, "my dog goes by the name toto." and the dog is thinking, "my owner goes by the name lesbian drew carey."
